Cleaning lots!!

In the community where TCC is located, there are a lot of vacant lots because of people who abandoned their houses when hurricane Katrina hit. One of the most effective things TCC does for its community is cleaning these lots. The upkeep of vacant lots makes for less crime and raises the value of the houses. A few people in our group were sent along with guides and some people from other churches to mow, weed whack, and trim down lots. The New Orleans weather wasn't fun sometimes, but sticking through it was part of the challenge. All the hard work really paid off when people showed their appreciation. It was interesting to get to speak with people in the community weither it was a brief or long amount of time. The whole project just goes to show how effective it is to work hard and get out of your comfort zone for Jesus. It's super refreshing! :) -Bekah
